You may find your tenancy agreement doesn’t allow any redecorating. In which case, it’s time to get creative with a canvas. They’re cheap and easy to get hold of – check out your local arts and crafts shop, or order online – and they provide a great way to add instant personality. What’s more, you can take your work of art with you when you move house.
You don’t have to buy full tins of paint to get started, either: simply use leftover paint from other projects – such as upcycled furniture – or snap up a set of Roller Testers in store, at dulux.co.uk or through our app. They’re mess-free and don’t require any additional kit.
Go abstract with artistic drips and splashes or opt for structure with sharp lines and shapes. Don’t hold back – it’s a great way to express yourself through bright, beautiful colour!
A few statement pieces can help bring your rental property to life in an instant. If your home is full of dull carpets, why not spruce them up with a couple of statement rugs? Not only will they add a splash of colour to any room, but they’ll help keep the floor intact, too. Make sure to take measurements before buying your rugs – you don’t want them to be too big or too small.
Wondering ‘how to decorate a rented room’? A great way to add character to your space is by dotting a few houseplants around. Houseplants are great for your health, too, as they help clean the air and eliminate harmful toxins. They’ve also been proven to help with concentration and productivity – perfect if your bedroom doubles up as an office.
